Tendonitis in the knee
I used to run alot on asphalt surfaces, then i skipped for about 20 minutes then i do squats. One day i developed this pain in ma knee and i had to stop working out. I went to the doctor and she told me it was tendonitis, but she didnt say specifically where. She gave me a knee brace and ant-inflammatory medicine, this is over 3 weeks now, I can walk fine without pain but if i attempt to run i will start to feel it it again. I really miss running, what can i do to help speed up the recovery.

Re: Tendonitis in the knee
You could be getting pain for a ton of reasons! Pain in your knee can be coming from a lot of places.
1. Weakness in the hips/core
2. Flexibility problems at the ankle
3. Weakness in the foot
For one you might want to try some exercises to strengthen your hip external rotators, abductors and extensors.
Strengthen the core with plank progressions
Some single leg balance work while controlling your foot arch can be helpful as well.
Mobilize Your Ankles
Do you have flat feet or foot problems?
Are you resting completely or still running? What brings on pain? By now you've probably figured out that this is a complex situation! Best case scenario at this point is to probably go back to the doc and ask to see a physical therapist or find another health professional. This probably isn't a scenario to self treat.
